WHERE’S JOHNNY? Isakson continues to play politics with Supreme Court Nominee
Merrick Garland longest stalled Supreme Court nominee
ATLANTA – It’s been 180 days since President Obama nominated Judge Merrick Garland to the Supreme Court following the death of Justice Antonin Scalia, marking Garland as the longest wait between a nomination and confirmation in U.S. History.
- Senator Isakson collects $174,000 per year in salary from American taxpayers, and we can’t even trust him to do his job. The self-proclaimed “hardest working Senator” has missed countless committee hearings and remained silent while his junior colleague blocked local judicial nominations, so it’s no surprise that he has refused to even meet with the nominee let alone hold a hearing or a vote.
- Senator Isakson is the problem in Washington and he’s playing politics with the Supreme Court nominee. He believes justice should wait so the next president can fill the vacancy and that meeting Judge Garland would be “rushing” the process.
